Our magnificent herd of elephants are one of the first animals that you'll see when you visit, and we can't think of a better way for you to begin exploring the zoo.
Elephants are intelligent and sociable animals who live together in family groups and usually led by the oldest female. We also have a bull elephant, Aung Bo, who joined us in 2012 and plays an important role in our conservation breeding programme.
Their most distinctive features is of course their long trunks which can be very powerful, but also very delicate when needed to forage for food.
Our youngest elephant Nandita, was born in August 2015 to experienced mum Thi.
